Ethical Textiles

KS3: ages 11-14KS4: ages 14-16KS5: ages 16+DVD

Filmed in Bangladesh, one of the world’s largest textile manufacturers, this resource explores the social cost of our cheap textiles. With footage filmed inside a number of Bangladeshi textile factories, it explores the issues of sweatshop labour, poor working conditions, a fair wage and the right to unionise and asks who is responsible? It then compares the social impacts of this mass-scale textiles production with the benefits brought to a small rural community in Bangladesh by a fair trade textile initiative.

As well as the 26-minute film, the DVD there are extensive teachers’ notes and student activities.The resource links in with many English exam board specifications; for further details, visit the Pumpkin Interactive website.
